The Longhorns softball team took two wins to start the fall softball season Wednesday night. Texas topped Blinn College 2-1 before it defeated St. Edward’s 8-0.
“Today is effectively a glorified practice day,” Texas head coach Connie Clark said. “We don’t say or take that lightly by any means as it’s a privilege to have someone to play against wearing different shirts as opposed to inter-squading. We just wanted (our team) to work on getting their timing and swings down tonight.”
The Texas hitters managed six hits against Blinn, led by Tuesday DerMargosian who went 2-for-3 with an RBI.
Janae Jefferson was 1-for-1, scoring both runs for the Longhorns. She stole three bases in the contest.
Erica Wright earned the win as she pitched three innings while allowing a run on three hits. She struck out six.
In the second game, the Longhorns had a better time at the plate, amassing 11 hits to score eight runs.
MK Tedder, a freshman infielder, was 1-for-4 with a home run.
Cierra Schick was 3-for-3 with two RBIs. Bekah Alcozer also drove in two runs as she went 1-for-2 with a double.
Kaitlyn Washington was 2-for-4 with an RBI. She had an RBI against Blinn as well.
DerMargosian, Taylor Ellsworth, Kristen Clark and Jefferson each had a hit. Clark had an RBI as well.
Brooke Bolinger, Chloe Romero and Clark combined for the shutout.
